How I became "wifey"

 Oswald always thought the traditional "wedding picture" poses were stupid...he came up with this instead.

We spent our Honeymoon on an island just off the coast of Georgia. The weather was perfect. We spent hours upon hours in our hotel room and the rest of the time by the beach. I thought life couldn't get any better than that.

It was like we were getting to know each other all over again. We would walk down the coastline hand-in-hand talking about everything.

Our hopes.

Our dreams.

Our future.

Our wedding.

Our lives.


It was as if time stood still. As though we were the only two people on the planet. We ate delicious food, the kind of food we would not normally eat. We spent money on things that were frivolous. 

One night as we were getting ready for bed, Oswald put his arms around my waist and said, "Can you believe you're my wifey girl?"
"No, I can't. It feels like I have been waiting for this day forever, and yet we've only known each other such a short time. It's amazing how when things are right, they just work out."

"That's true. I can't wait to spend eternity with my wifey."

I smiled and said, "I love you, husband."

Do you have a nickname for the love of your life?
--We continue to call each other husband and wifey to this day. I think it might make some people sick, but those are our nicknames for each other.

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
--We went to Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. About an hour from our home in Jacksonville, FL at the time. When we drive to my in-laws in Florida and I see the road sign, I still get nostalgic.

If you could change one thing about you, what would it be?
--that's a tough question. I think I would change shoe size. I am a size 9.5 or 10 and it's hard to find cute shoes in that size! I think a size 8.5 or 9 would be perfect!


  1. Very cute picture!! I'd love if you were an 8.5-9, then we could share shoes!!! Haha

  2. How sweet ! There's nothing better than 2 people in love...and if I could change one thing about me, it would be to be taller !
